Yo People!

Me and my humans will be away tomorrow. Something about a moon and a sun and we’re headin’ to “totality” whatever that is, in Wyoming. That’s like HOURS away. So we’re gettin up early and heading out.

So if you don’t hear from us, it’s because the sun and the moon swallowed us up and sucked us into a galaxy far far away!

Hahaha. Well probably not. But I’m curious about this eclipse thing. 

If you get to see too, let us know. 

Talk soon. Over and out.

Wyatt!!!   First of all, you look so gorgeous in the photo!!  That really is a wonderful picture.  Very “artsy” Mr Wyatt!!

Very exciting that you’re going to Wyoming to see the full magic of it all!  

Make sure you don’t look directly at the Sun, okay?   The picture below will show you what you need to do to protect your eyes, as well as what not to do!  

I’ll be in Virginia where supposedly we’ll have about a 75% – 80% Eclipse.

Jasper Lily will be (most likely as I am at work) spending her day in the laundry basket trying to find her zen. This particular shift in the planets, the mercury in retrograde and upcoming eclipse has created even more loco behavior than usual with my little sidekick! Looking for some zen at the beach last night was beyond terrifying to her so we came home. She must sense something I do not but hopefully.. once this passes… we will be back to our normal level of crazy and “seeing of dead people”. 🙂

Enjoy your day Wyatt!!!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Beautiful sunny day …..until right before the partial eclipse was to start here at my house……then the clouds and the rain came in!

A woman at work had some extra glasses. I grabbed a pair and watched from my backyard when I went home at lunch to check on Rocky. 

Rocky came out into the yard with me. He was more interested in the bug – that he eventually ate, I think – than the sun. 

David and Rocky (and Baxter now too!)

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.

I am/was lucky.  My city was right in the path of totality!  I was at work watching in our parking lot with my co-workers.  I kinda wanted to stay home just to see how Biscuit and the cats would react.

I will say it was awesome to see! laughing

Awww thanks Sally! I’m sorry you didn’t get to see it live but I know the photos out there are amazing.

Marla you are SO LUCKY you didn’t have to go anywhere to see it! 

David how neat that you got to see it with Rocky. That’s a special moment, even if the bug was more interesting.

Alison I hope Jasper was OK!

Sally you made us laugh yesterday with your photos! We saw them at night when we got home, we couldn’t get online all day long because there were so many people the interwebs broke. I’ll try to share more pics on Wyatt’s blog. 

Wyatt? Adorable? He says “No m’am, I’m handsome maybe, but not adorable.”

Speaking of him…he didn’t react AT ALL to the celestial event, but he did get extremely interested in what everyone else was doing. When people started cheering and hollering, he was more wound up about that than the amazing thing going on above his head!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Golly, I Forget.

Or rather, the Graphics Interchange Format (better known by its acronym GIF /ˈdʒɪf/ JIF or /ˈɡɪf/ GHIF) is a bitmap image format that was developed by US-based software writer Steve Wilhite while working at the bulletin board service (BBS) provider CompuServe on June 15, 1987.
